    Another recipe from the 1980 version of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania that was given to me by my Nana when I became an adult. This was submitted to the cookbook by my late grandfather - William Parker.

      We love onion soup and I usually have a supply in the freezer but there was none left. Your recipe came in very handy; so fast and easy to prepare. I did add some Gruyère cheese and put it under the broiler. Thank you. I made this for ZWT5. Rita

      DH loved it as well as I. Kids not so much as they are not onion fans (I will not let that effect my rating). I used both sweet and cooking onions. I will need to double recipe next time. (Made and reviewed for NZ/AUZ recipe Swap #21, Oct.2008)
